I am installing new cut off valves under a bathroom sink. Is there any trick to getting the valves to end up being tight and in the position that you want them? That is, with the valve knob on top instead of being off to one side or the other.
Not sure what your talking about but if you hold back with another wrench you can align almost anything
There are two threaded 3/8" lines coming out of the wall and the cut off valves screw on to those threads. Is there an easy way to screw those valves on so that the valve ends up being tight and in the correct position? Whenever I have tried to do this I end up with the valves being a quarter turn too far or not far enough.
